|AmericanPharaoh, jockey Victor Espinoza win the 141st Kentucky Derby|
CONGRATULATIONS!!! to AmericanPharaoh and his humans. What a beautiful horse. His steady, forceful, constant stride and pace paid off at the line. I kept waiting for Gary Stevens to edge Firing Line ahead and inch his nose over the finish first, to no avail.
Great job, AmericanPharaoh! What an exciting race. It never fails, no matter where I watch the Kentucky Derby, I always end up standing up, jumping and screaming at the television. I love you, horses.
If you missed the race live, what's wrong with you? How could you? Try to get it together in the next two weeks. In the meantime, here's a link to the Kentucky Derby 2015 replay.
And seeing as how it just seems wrong to congratulate the gorgeous equine athlete and not mention his human supporters at all...Yay! Jockey Victor Espinoza, trainer Bob Baffert and owner Zayat Stables. Well done.
Can't wait to see what happens in Baltimore in a few weeks when the Preakness takes center stage. Curious what challenges the new field will offer AmericanPharaoh. Would love to see another Triple Crown.
Let's go HORSES!
Thanks for today's fun.
Don't forget to tune in May 16th for the second leg of the Triple Crown series, The Preakness.
